Ouzoud Apes & Waterfall

This day trip travels east of Marrakech into the foothills of the High Atlas to the Cascades d’Ouzoud. The first stop is usually at Demnate, a Berber market town. Sunday is market day and a visit to the rural market is fascinating.

A short drive from Demnate is Imi n’Ifri, a natural arch-shaped land bridge in the M’goun Geopark. Imi n’Ifri in Berber means ‘the grotto’s mouth’. A stepped trail leads down to a river bed and into the ‘mouth’ under the land bridge. Shoes with good grip are essential as it can be slippery. After, continue to the Berber town of Azilal (market day is Thursday). From here, drive a scenic (and little-used) back route to Ouzoud Falls, through the Western High Atlas National Park.

Near the top of the falls are a troop of ever-present and playful Barbary apes. There are many options for lunch at the falls – ask your driver for recommendations.
